Maid cafés (メイド喫茶 ) are a subcategory of cosplay restaurants found predominantly in Japan. In these cafés, waitresses dressed in maid uniforms act as servants, and treat customers as masters (and mistresses) in a private home, rather than as café patrons.
For 2014, Florida Anime Experience is proud to welcome back this popular concept to our convention with Maid Café Latte (www.Facebook.com/MaidCafeLE)
The team from Wasabi Anime® sent scouts to Akihabara in Japan for the past couple of years in order to research making convention-based Maid Cafés more authentic. Maid Café Latte is the result of this and we are striving to create a new, unique, and exciting experience for anime con attendees. Please note: OUR MAID CAFE IS AN ALL AGES EXPERIENCE!
Florida Anime Experience 2014 will host four (4) seatings of the café in the Manga Library (the Citrus C room) in the Conference Center.
- FRIDAY at 6:00 PM. (Seating begins at 5:45 PM)
- SATURDAY at 12:30 PM. (Seating begins at 12:15 PM)
- SATURDAY at 6:00 PM. (Seating begins at 5:45 PM)
- SUNDAY at 3:00 PM. (Seating begins at 2:45 PM)
As an added bonus this year, drinks served in Maid Café Latte will be authentic boba drinks courtesy of our friends at Chibi’s Boba!
